He regularly advises on international and domestic construction disputes including arbitration, mediation, facilitated negotiation, expert determinations, rapid adjudications and the utilisation of dispute resolution boards. 

David's clients include tier one and tier two contractors, private equity developers and institutional developers. Before joining Pinsent Masons David and Simon were acting for John Holland in relation the Perth Children's Hospital litigation against the State in the Supreme Court of Western Australia.

Fraser McMillan, Head of Construction Advisory & Disputes in Australia, said, "David and Simon are welcome additions to the firm's construction disputes team in Australia which is continuing to go from strength to strength. We don't see any signs of that slowing as the State and Federal governments continue to increase their investment in infrastructure as one part of the recovery efforts from the pandemic. David and Simon bring significant experience and bench strength to our team in Australia and also in the broader Asia Pacific region."

The appointment follows the continued expansion of the firm's infrastructure and energy team in Asia Pacific. Pinsent Masons Australia has more than 100 specialist infrastructure and energy lawyers and business professionals working across our three offices in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth.
